San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin played with a heavy heart on Sunday. Prior to the game with the New York Giants, Goodwin announced that his infant son had died.

Then, during the game, he went out and produced the team’s biggest play of the season. He announced on Instagram that his wife Morgan and Goodwin lost the baby due to complications of the pregnancy.

“Unfortunately, we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 am,” he wrote on the social media platform. “Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan.

“The pain 9physcially, mentally, and emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please pray for the Goodwin family.”

A few hours later, Goodwin beat the Giants defense and scored on an 83-yard touchdown pass from quarterback C.J. Beathard. After beating Janoris Jenkins for the score, Goodwin was clearly emotional in the end zone, as he prayed and blew a kiss to the sky.

The 49ers are now on a bye and he’ll have some time to be with his wife during this difficult time. The team is not slated to practice again until Nov. 20.
